Torres pursuit could cause problems
After an utterly horrific year, it should come as no surprise that Manchester United are already pressing ahead in the summer transfer market.
United limped across the finish line of the domestic campaign last weekend to bring the curtain down on their worst ever season in the Premier League, where they shipped more goals than ever before on their way to recording their lowest ever points tally in the modern era.
With major issues at the back, Villarreal defender Pau Torres has emerged as a potential summer signing for Erik ten Hag, who officially started his new role at Old Trafford this week. According to The Manchester Evening News, the United boss has been ‘consulted’ by the club hierarchy over a deal for Torres, who was also on United’s radar last summer.
United decided against signing Torres and instead opted to pursue a deal for Raphael Varane. The former Real Madrid man, like so many others, endured a sorry season – but acquiring Torres to replace the 29-year-old would leave Ten Hag with more problems than solutions.
